Abu Ghraib dog handler gets 6 months for refusing to be “soft and cuddly”

Sgt. Michael J. Smith, 24, was found guilty on Tuesday of abusing Iraqi prisoners. But it’s his just say no to "soft and cuddly" defense that jumped out at me. According to news reports Smith testified that he wished he’d been trained on how not to get into trouble with his superiors.

His motto for real men seems to be:

Real men shouldn’t be afraid to inflict pain and suffering when they feel justified and believe they won’t get caught. Real men can’t be bothered with ethics or the importance of respecting the rights of others.

I’ll cheer the men who aren’t afraid to be seen as "soft and cuddly" and if a man believes Sgt. Smith was in the right, he can be a real man far away from me.
